Ola has been struggling with the issue of suspension failure on its electric scooters for quite some time now.
Ola has finally issued a recall for its S1 electric scooter over the suspension failure issue that has been plaguing the EV startup for a long time now. There have been a lot of instances where electric scooter owners have reported cases where the front fork of their electric scooters broke down while riding on roads. Ola has sold over 1.5 lakh EVs in 2022 alone and the monthly sales crossed the Rs 18,000 mark in January. With so many EVs on the road, the announcement by Ola is much appreciated.
